you have to apply internally, know people who got full time 787 in 6-12 months

It is possible, although those would have had to have joined with a 737 type rating and therefore only be type frozen for 12 months, as opposed to a 3 year type freeze for NTR joiners going onto the 737. Otherwise only bidding for dual 737/787 could perhaps get you onto the 78 that quickly, although not all year round.

Hi. What are the chances of getting BRS as a base as a new joiner?

It's a small base but it was offered in the most recent round of new starters. If you don't get it straight away you can bid for it as soon as you join.

Some pilots with joining dates of early 2013 are pencilled in for command courses this winter. Don’t think you can infer from that, that pilots joining now can expect the same in 2025. Although it’s unlikely to be earlier than that, it could be considerably later.

I imagine there are some very unhappy FOs waiting for their command. BALPA strikes again.

Does it matter? I thought the process is still based on seniority.

It does matter if 50 people walk in above you . . .

How can anyone walk in above you if they are less senior than you? Doesn't that defeats the seniority system? Unless the process it's not based on seniority, I don't see how it can affect you. I'm not a TUI employee so I honestly don't know how it works, just making and observation.

From the Liverpool Echo
TUI Airways will create jobs for over 100 pilots and over 200 cabin crew, with 50 Thomas Cook pilots guaranteed to fill the vacancies.

Dawn Wilson, managing director for TUI Airways said: "We are delighted that our additional flying allows us to grow our team of ‘moment makers’ at TUI Airways"Every year we welcome new cabin crew and pilots and this year is set to be our biggest and best yet.

"I’m particularly proud to be able to commit to offering over 50 Thomas Cook Captains the opportunity to join TUI Airways and continue to fly customers on their holidays.”


So of the 100 pilot jobs they’re all DEC with 50 going to ex TCX? 🤔

Its 100 pilots, 50 of which are TCX DEC. Who will join the bottom of the seniority list as captains. Round of applause to whoever came up with that.

Yeah I didn’t make my sarcasm obvious enough. I wonder what the FO’s in TUI think? I’m all for airlines bending over backwards to help our unfortunate colleagues at TCX, but at the expense of progression of employees already there is out of order really.
